In case email messages are an essential component of your online communication with business colleagues or relatives, you might be better off using an email address with your own personal domain and an email provider that supports the IMAP and POP3 protocols, instead of relying on a web-based email service that involves limitations with regards to the maximum size of the attachments. Thus, you will be able to access your mailboxes on any desktop or mobile device using any client software – Thunderbird, Apple Mail, Outlook, and so on. With the IMAP protocol, you’ll be able to view the emails at your end, but they will be on the server all the time, whereas with POP3, all email messages will be downloaded to the device, unless you choose a copy to be stored on the server. Also, you’ll be able to make use of lots of other valuable options – calendars, contact groups, and so on, not to mention that in case there is a temporary predicament with your Internet connection, you can still check your emails as they’ll be on your desktop or handheld device.
POP3 IMAP E-mail Accounts in Shared Hosting
You’ll be able to use any email client software and any device to access your email messages if you purchase one of our shared hosting. Our email servers offer support for both email protocols (POP3 and IMAP), so you can pick the one that matches your needs – you can download all email messages on your PC or you can leave the messages on the mail server if you’ve got a firm and different employees need to get access to them, for example. You can even download a configuration file for a given mailbox for any of the three most widely used desktop clients – Apple Mail, Thunderbird and Outlook. You’ll just have to run the file on your PC and that mailbox will be automatically set up. In case you would rather use your phone, we’ve added elaborate tutorials on how to configure an email account on an iOS- or an Android-powered device.
